IT bellwether, Infosys Ltd. today said that it has entered into a strategic partnership with Queen's University Belfast to fight against the cyber security threats.
This 3-year deal will bring together Infosys with Queen’s University Belfast’s Center for Secure Information Technologies (CSIT), UK’s leading university cyber security research labs, and Invest Northern Ireland, the Northern Ireland government’s regional business development agency, the company said in a filing to the Bombay Stock Exchange.
The partnership will establish a research, education and commercialization model to develop solutions and intellectual property for combatting cyber security threats arising out of the rise of digital and Cloud-based business models.
Moreover, the deal will lead to the establishment of a CSIT-Infosys Cyber Lab that will become part of a global network of companies and institutions developing security technologies. As a part of CSIT advisory and governing board, Infosys will play a key role in developing the center’s research roadmap and gain access to its research and technologies for commercial usage, the filing added.
